I was wondering who uses a calendar wall in 2nd? And if so what kind of things do you have on it? Fact family house? Clock? Number of the day? Etc. thanks

We use Every Day Counts Calendar Math from Great Source and each month we have different components to add. You may want to do a coin counter, some type of graph, something with time and measurement.

I have a math focus wall, which has interactive days of the week and weather on it. Next to that bb I have a calendar pocket chart. I have a calendar leader who's job is to update it each day. For actual calendar mini-lessons, I do that on the SMARTboard. After about a month, one of my students leads this time during our morning meeting. I rotate skills each month. This includes skip counting (5s, 10s, 100s, 25s, 4s,and 3s), time, money, months of the year (order, # of days, abbreviations), and whatever skills they may be struggling with as a class.

I do calendar time every morning. We have a calendar where they tell yesterday's date and today's date. I also have a weather chart and a large magnetic clock. I pull sticks to decide who will tell the weather and the time. In addition, I have a chart for our number of the day. They have to show the number in six different ways. There is a box for the numeral, number word, tally marks, ten frame, model drawing, and base ten blocks/place value. I pull a stick for each box.

Sorry my computer cut me off before I could explain...
I also have a number of the month like 10.
Then each date, we add and subtract from that number.
If it's September 4th, we write 10 + 4 = 14 and 10 - 4 = 6.
